Aston Martin Valhalla Joins Valkyrie in AM Hypercar Lineup

Aston Martin announced today that its latest hypercar, formerly codenamed the AM-RB 003, has officially been named the Aston Martin Valhalla. This new hypercar is the second in Aston Martin’s lineup to be a collaboration with Red Bull Advanced Technologies, after the Aston Martin Valkyrie. 

Aston Martin say that the Valhalla will continue the tradition of ‘V’ cars, which can trace back to 1951 when the Vantage designation was used for high performance variants of the DB2. 

More details on the Aston Martin Valhalla to follow. 

2020 Porsche 718 Boxster Spyder and 718 Cayman GT4 Bring Back the Flat-Six

Porsche has pulled the covers off the new 2020 Porsche 718 Boxster Spyder and 718 Cayman GT4.

Both of the top-spec 718 models are equipped with a new normally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six producing 414-horsepower at a screaming 7,600 rpm and 310 lb-ft of torque between 5,000-6,800 rpm. It’s important to note that this is not the same 4.0-liter flat-six that is found in the current 911 GT3, but actually is loosely based on the 9A2 from the 991.2 911 Carrera.

S:S:L Rental Roulette – 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK Sahara

Hawaii is my happy place, and somewhere I will try to get to as often as I can. Since 2007, I’ve always rented Jeep Wranglers when visiting the islands. Sure there are more comfortable rides available, but why would you want anything else but a Jeep when half the islands are unimproved dirt roads with lots of off-road fun?
